Sad Maggie
By Michael Baker

Well, hey Sad Maggie!
gonna tell you one day
tell you one day
how your daddy ran away
Well, he ran out west cuz the train was a-going
Blew out west cuz the wind was a-blowing
Always had a dime but he never had the time
He was a-riding first class on the cross-country line

He was a hard-time winner
a rovin misfit
Hey, little Maggie gonna tell ya one day
tell ya one day how your daddy ran away

Well, you were happy as a hen for the money that he sent ya
money for the schoolin' that you always went to
He always gave a dime but he never had the time
was a-riding first class on the cross-country line

He was a pocket-full traveler
a roving gambler
Hey, little Maggie gonna tell ya one day
tell ya one day how your daddy ran away

Well, there was money in his hand
but his hand was on the table
Ace in the pocket and
a Royal Family
Well, he always had a dime but he never had the time
was a-riding first-class on the cross-country line
